This hunk is not a question.

The code #include "include/uapi/linux/bpf.h" is wrong
if you understand the meaning of #include "..."

https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/cpp/Search-Path.html


The directive #include "include/uapi/linux/bpf.h"
means the preprocessor should look for this header first
in the path relative to the directory of net/bpfilter/main.c

That is, the preprocessor will look for
net/bpfilter/include/uapi/linux/bpf.h
which obviously does not exist.


I am fixing this because adding -I.
in kernel Makefile is always wrong.
For example, commit 5cd5548ff439b91
